Connecting Faith, Scholarship, Service, World
The Christensen Center for Vocation is a natural outgrowth of Augsburg’s commitment to the theological exploration of vocation. This commitment rises from the belief that all people have the capacity to be agents of God’s love by using their gifts and talents to serve their neighbor. By promoting and supporting activities that provide opportunities for deep reflection, the CCV helps students, staff, faculty, and friends of the College discern their life purpose in service to the world.
The fundamental principles that inspire and guide all CCV endeavors are the five lessons learned from Bernhard M. Christensen, president of Augsburg College from 1938-1962:
- Christian faith liberates minds and lives.
- Diversity strengthens vital communities.
- Interfaith friendships enrich learning.
- The love of Christ draws us to God.
- We are called to service in the world.
